From the manufacturer
Founded in 1990 by roboticists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, iRobot is THE robot company. For more than twenty years, our focus has been to provide robots that empower people to do more – whether that's in defense and security, telepresence communication or in the home.
iRobot Roomba 780 Vacuum Cleaning Robot for Pets and Allergies
The iRobot Roomba 780 vacuum cleaning robot removes up to 98% of dirt, dust and pet hair – on its own – at the touch of a button. Using iAdapt Responsive Cleaning Technology, the robot thoroughly vacuums the entire floor, including hard-to-reach spots under furniture.
3-Stage Cleaning with AeroVac Series 2 – Roomba 780 picks up an amazing amount of dirt, pet hair and other debris with its patented 3-stage cleaning system. A spinning side brush cleans along wall edges, counter-rotating brushes act like a dustpan and broom, and a powerful AeroVac Series 2 vacuum pulls dirt, hair, and debris off the brushes to the back of the bin. Roomba 780 uses a new advanced cleaning head which provides superior performance for picking up pet hair, dirt, dust and more.
iAdapt Responsive Cleaning Technology – iAdapt is iRobot’s advanced system of software and sensors that allows Roomba to clean more of your room, more thoroughly. It ensures Roomba vacuums every section of your room multiple times, cleaning areas you can’t easily reach including under furniture, around everyday obstacles, and along walls. It even avoids stairs and drop-offs, navigates past soft barriers such as couch skirts, recognizes cords and carpet fringe, and self-adjusts to clean hardwood, carpet, and linoleum.
Long-lasting battery – The robot uses sophisticated power management software that results in 50% longer battery life than previous Roomba generations, ensuring hundreds of cleaning cycles under proper use.
Cliff detecting technology prevents your Roomba from falling down stairs
Control Roomba by infrared remote without getting up
Roomba can be scheduled to perform up to seven cleaning sessions per week
Virtual Wall Lighthouses use infrared beams to block Roomba from entering off-limit areas
Roomba’s wall-following technology allows it to clean along edges and corners

1)Is a Roomba right for me?
2)Should I go for the 780 over the 760 or 770?
Let me address question (1) first: Is the Roomba right for me? My thoughts on the Roomba are this. It is a great little automatic vacuum/duster but it isn't perfect. Here are the pros and cons as I see them:
* It's an automated vacuum. Seriously, how awesome is that? Who wants to spend a morning vacuuming when they can just let loose the tiny 'bot and go do other things? Not me.
* Adaptive logic. The brain behind how it gets every space covered.
* Programmable. iRobot encourages tech-heads to program their Roombas to get the most out of it though I haven't and I don't think it is essential.
* Date and time functions. You can program when you want the little bot to run it's cleaning cycle.
* Small dust bin. The dust bin was reading full after vacuuming one small carpeted room before even completing its cleaning cycle.
* Not really truly set and forget - just like regular vacuuming, you need to prepare the room. Think of the things you normally move around when vacuuming so you can get behind furniture or other objects. You need to pre-move everything. Do doors stay open so the Roomba can go from room to room or do you close them to get behind them and set the Roomba in each room individually?
* Lots of maintenance - it says you need to de-hairs the sweeper rollers after every 3 - THREE - uses. Is that something you normally do for your big vac?
* Small replaceable filters - no bag means the filters will get dirtier faster and will need to be replaced more often.
* Deep cleaning - I guess I just don't see the little vac giving that "deep" clean that a full size unit can deliver.
For me, I use my Roomba as a excellent little automated duster for our hard floors. It really helps in keeping those pesky dust bunnies in check though I still need to get the swiffer out to get underneath dressers and such.
The 780 is truly gorgeous. With the touch controls and finish it looks as good as any Apple product IMHO, a beautiful complement to any modern deco home.
780 vs 770 vs. 760.
All have HEPA filters and the same cleaning mechanism. The 770 and 780 have improved dust detection through added sensors and the 780 inlcudes 2 light towers to help with room to room navigation and touch controls versus buttons. Additionally my 780 came with cleaning tools for the spin brush and rollers as well as an extra set of rollers/spin brush and hepa filters.
The Roomba is a great added tool to keeping my house clean but I am not sure I could rely on it alone to get the job done.
Usage update: I've found that if I leave the Roomba unused for an extended period of time, say 2 weeks, then I run the risk of having to reset the unit. This is just weird and possibly a software glitch which I'm not sure of how to update.
Secondly, and neat way to prolong the life of those mini-filters? I vacuum them with my big vac and bang, they're back looking fresh.
The attached photos are of what the undercarriage of the Roomba looks like 9 months after purchase, as well as the tools I have found are better for regular cleaning and maintenance.
Though a hefty price tag, I definitely think the Roomba is worth the cost, assuming you know what comes along with ownership. The Roomba drastically reduced the amount of time we have to spend regularly vacuuming the house, keeping our house looking much cleaner and making our weekend deep-cleaning much easier. It's very nice to come home to a house with a clean-looking floor, and I can definitely tell if the Roomba didn't get all the way done. It's not a "set and forget" kind of machine, though. Regular maintenance is required to keep the Roomba operating efficiently.
*Good coverage and ability to clean both hard surfaces and tile - The Roomba runs for a little less than two hours on a fully charged battery, and it seemed to completely cover the whole house at least once.
*Easy to work - The accompanying DVD provided all the necessary information, including how to set the schedule. So far, no questions we couldn't answer.
*The schedule - I love the scheduler. I have ours set to run Mon, Wed, Fri at 10:30 AM after we have all left to go to work.
*Navigation - The Roomba easily maneuvered its way from the tile to carpet with no trouble, and can even get up on the brick work in front of the fireplace! The high shag of the area carpet is too much for it, so it just goes around it. Makes it an excellent place to toss dog toys so they don't accidentally get sucked up.
* Noise - This thing is NOT quiet, particularly on hard floors! Maybe not quite as loud as a normal vacuum, but be prepared to have to turn up the sound on the TV if you want to run it while you're around.
* Sensors - I sometimes can't understand why the Roomba takes the path it does around the house. Eventually everything gets clean, but watching it move can be really frustrating!
*Pre-clean - After coming home a few times to see the Roomba sitting in the middle of the living room with an error symbol because a dog or cat toy got caught in the spinner, I realized I would have to scan the house to pick up anything that could get caught in the brushes. I also adjusted the chairs of our dining and kitchen tables to ensure easy movement around them. It's a time-waster and battery-suck for the Roomba to have to slooooowly navigate between all of them.
*Roomba maintenance - I hadn't really considered how much cleaning and maintenance this thing would need. If someone in the house has long hair (like me) or quite a few pets (also like me), a Roomba will need regular cleaning to ensure proper performance. About once every two weeks, I flip the Roomba over, remove the brushes, and clean everything out. (Photo is attached). It takes about 15 minutes to cut away all the hair that has gotten wound up in the brushes and along the connections. If you don't have pets or anyone with long hair, you might not have to do it as often, and it likely won't take as long.
*Internal filter replacement is NECESSARY to ensure optimal performance. I had admittedly forgotten about those two yellow filters inside the waste bin, and once I changed them out, the suction and dirt-pulling drastically improved.
*Filter and brush replacements cost about $20 for 6 months worth of supplies.
*Getting back to home station - Almost never does the Roomba get back to the charging station before the battery runs out, meaning a "find the Roomba" game I have to play three times per week. It's usually just sitting in the middle of a room somewhere....lol
*Cleaning tools - Our Roomba came with extra brushes, filters, and a cleaning tool. The cleaning tool is useless! I found that a small Exacto knife and a plastic comb to be the best tools to clean the Roomba (photo attached). Be sure to also have a tiny screwdriver (like one for eyeglasses) to unscrew the plastic outside brush. So much hair got caught in there that it had stopped spinning!
